First, they are not comfortable and caused pain with only an hour of use. I have come to terms with the fact I am a larger person and things are not going to be designed with me in mind, but I expected there to be at least a little bit of adjustability to account for different ear sizes. There is absolutely no adjustability or give. If your ears are not just right these are not going to fit you. I am finding it's not worth the $200 gamble for a small chance that these will be comfortable for you.
Second, the charger is separate from the case...... why..... why Bose..... why.... every other competitor in this price range (and even in the lower ranges) has the charger in the case. I travel for a living and space is limited. The last thing I need is to pack a large docking station with a permanently connected cable, with no easy way to manage the cable, on top of the separate case for the buds.
Third, the charger uses a USB-A connector. These came out in 2020, there is no reason why it shouldn't be a PD compatible USB-C. And it should be a separate cable that plugs into the charger and not hardwired for easy storage.
Fourth, the battery life is not for all day use. I only used them for 6 hours (in 30-60 minute blocks before they were to painful to wear) before they died from a full charge. And hopefully you are by a wall or have a battery bank and the needlessly cumbersome charger to connect these for an hour to get through the rest of the day.
Fifth, be ready to get another app if you have any legacy Bose products. You have to download Bose Music to connect/configure these, you cannot use the Bose Connect that my QC35 II requires. It wouldn't bug me as much if I could also configure the QC35 II in Bose Music so I only had to have one app for both devices.
Sixth and final, the price. Understanding that Bose products do cost more than other competitive products, every Bose speaker and headphones I had up to this point I felt were worth the higher price. Even if these worked as intended, I would still be grumpy about the price and likely would have returned them on that alone unless they completely blew me away. My wife has a pair of wrap around earbuds that address every issue listed above, with the exceptions of the open ear, that she got for $30... If I'm going to pay 6 times the cost I'm going to expect something at least as functional.
In conclusion, these could have been amazing, and I think that is the part that makes this more painful. Out of the dozen Bose products I have used in my lifetime every one has at least met, and most exceeded, my expectations until these earbuds. I expect better from you Bose.

1. They have a thin hard plastic seam that sticks out on the inside of the band and around the earphones that dig and slice into your ear. Its baffling why BOSE would release a product like this. no silicone cover? Really? No way these are ipx4 or will last long as such. But I did see people on youtube drop them in glasses of water. so maybe they are ok for the rain lol.
2. The holding case is magnetic so takes a little prying to get open, but there is no magnet to hold the earbuds in, almost like Bose wants you to drop them! Which believe me. You will!
3. The big bands that go behind your ears, make your ears stick out like a hobbit!
Wear these with glasses and it makes all of the above much worse!
1. They sound decent, way better then aftershockz. In fact they sound Better then even alot of in ear buds. But If i'm being honest you will have to keep the volume fairly low to hear fully whats around you as a runner or cyclist. So pumping them for great sound is something you would only do when not in those situations.
- sound quality
- battery time
- comfortable ( both me and my wife tried to keep wearing it for at least 1 hour and none of us felt any pain or physical discomfort)
- no isolation on your hearings when running outdoor
- few functions/buttons (no volume/play-pause control)
- a little pricey
- it is designed for users who need keep their ears 'open' so don't be surprised that its sound quality is not at top tier, especially when you plan to enjoy music solely
Top reviews from other countries
In recent years Bose have been experimenting with various product ideas and they've been brave to attempt new form factors. And I love that. Unfortunately, when it comes to in-ear audio I don't think they have found a winner yet.
These earbuds come with a nice promise; less bulk and weight than over-ear headphones while still not putting anything in your ear canals like in-ear buds, leaving your ears free and open to hear your surroundings. It's the same idea as their audio sunglasses but without having to wear shades all the time. The concept sounds good - you can go for a run and enjoy music without the danger of blocking your ability to hear traffic. The problem with this is that it creates a new danger; hearing damage.
In order to hear music at a satisfactory level while you run or cycle (with all that wind blowing into your ears) you need to turn the volume up to unsafe levels. And most people will do that without hesitation. As a person with tinnitus because of exposure to loud noise, I can tell you this is not a risk worth taking.
But not everyone is into that kind of outdoor exercise. So let's look at other use cases and see how they perform there. Say you want to use them at the gym. Again, you will need to crank up it to overcome the background noise and music created by the gym's other members and the sound system. What about just using them at home in a quiet room? For me these would not be one of my first choices, because these earbuds produce a constant hiss. I was disappointed to find that in 2021 a $250 pair of earbuds would have such a high self-noise floor and hiss all the time.
Aside from the hiss, the sound quality is better than expected but in my opinion not as good as Airpods Pro or 1More earbuds to name a couple of similarly priced alternatives. Now don't get me wrong, for earbuds that don't actually go into the ears they still manage to sound good (which isn't easy with this design) and noticeably better than the Bose sunglasses, but they don't quite compare to ordinary in-ear buds at a similar price point. There's plenty of bass and the top end is fine, but the mids are a bit muddy. Stereo separation is wide but in a slightly weird way. I think I like it though.
The case is gorgeous, really, a beautiful piece of design and manufacturing, but it's enormous at nearly three times the size of the Airpods Pro case. This is not a case meant for the pocket. And it doesn't charge the earbuds. Instead, they are charged on a magnetic charging station which plugs into a USB outlet. The buds are powered on by pressing a little button on each bud. They don't turn on automatically when removed from the case or placed on the ears. When you pause the music for a few minutes, they power off. You must press one of the little buttons again to power them on.
As for comfort, they aren't bad. At first I found them slightly annoying when I talked, chewed or yawned but I got used to it within just a few hours. Wearing them with glasses makes them less comfortable but it's not as bad as I expected. Wearing them while running is something I didn't like so much. They didn't feel like they would fall off, but with every step I felt them move against my ear. I never forgot they were there.
I like the innovation here and I like that these are different. I feel sad though, because I quite like the Bose Frames Tenor, which are comfortable and make my ears feel wonderfully free. I expected to feel a similar way here as these aim to achieve the same thing. But my ultimate thoughts on these is that they're more expensive than their sound quality justifies, they are larger, less comfortable, more clumsy, worse sounding and less convenient than any of my favourite earbuds. And the constant hiss that's audible when the music is low would be a surprise to hear in any earbuds/headphones/speakers over $25, never mind something ten times that price. But they are innovative and they do something that most earbuds don't; they free up the ear canals, which for some people might be useful. And there aren't many options on the market that can do that, besides bone conduction and these sound better than bone conduction earbuds.
But they're Bose and like all Bose products they sound great. A little heavy on the ears but manageable. I still enjoy them however long the batteries last.
